I have been to The pink Elephant on many occasions whilst staying at my home in Port Charlotte and will always continue to return. The food is amazing and the Chef very accommodating. My Father requested if he could have his favorite starter made into his main which posed no problem whatsoever. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and very reasonable price... More

This is a step back into the "Old World." Very gracious, great service, food, environment. My wife and I went there with another couple and just completely enjoyed a wonderful lunch together.

My wife and I stayed at the Gasparilla in following our wedding earlier in the evening. We originally chose the Pink Elephant but the manager, Tiffany, was unable to honor our reservations. We were disappointed until we met Diane, the manager at the Gasparilla Inn Main Dining Room. She and here staff took pity on our plight and proceeded to... More

I was thrilled to see that the black grouper was on the menu. Their menu changes often so, I was thrilled to see it again. Both times it was the best seafood dish I have ever had, cooked perfectly, just fantastic. My husband got a beef dish and it did not disappoint. This is a place to dress up and... More

Ate here with the family our last night on the Island. Person who took our reservation did not tell us that any male in the party over 12 years old needed pants, as my sons were in nice dress shorts. They were very accommodating though and let us borrow some pants for the boys so we didn't have to go... More

My friend and I both ordered the Cobia for dinner and the only thing that was edible was the salad. Beautiful surroundings and great service(a bit too clingy for my taste tho).

I'm not sure I've ever been to a resort dining room that measured up to smaller venues. The main dining room at the Gasparilla is no different. It is nice, very nice. The food is good, very good. It just isn't excellent. It is a wonderful experience, and I'd go again. I'd just like to see them get away from... More

The 4 of us arrived with high expectations but were so very disappointed with our dinner. My husband's filet (at $44) was poorly cooked and chewy. Two of us had fish that probably dried out while sitting under a heat lamp. We had ordered wine to have with our dinner - but it arrived as we were finishing. Terrible service... More
